Gunnarsson to AZ Alkmaar on trial

Attacking Icelandic midfielder Aron Einar Gunnarsson (16) who plays for Thor Akureyri has been asked to come on trial at Dutch club AZ Alkmaar. The youngster is regarded as highly promising and has had trials at several European clubs in the past year. NEC Njimingen offered Gunnarsson a contract after he impressed on trial at the club late last year and couple of weeks later the midfielder trained with Danish club Esjberg. Gunnarsson has also been on trial at Dutch giants PSV along with English Championship club Ipswich Town and Swedish club Örgryte.
